This piece is called “Nothing Much Happened Today (for Eric and Dylan)” and is by artist Noelle Mason. It’s been lovingly carefully stitched by hand, and who knows how long it must have taken. My interpretation: those long hours pay homage to the community around the Columbine High School shooting. I’m sure each stitch was spent deeply considering the implications of the image. The piece measures 50 x 66 inches. Via Radical Cross Stitch.
